Jack Dorsey, one of the most influential figures behind the development of Bluesky, has announced his departure from the social networking platform’s board. The announcement came after Dorsey made a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, discussing his philanthropic initiatives. When asked about his involvement with Bluesky, he briefly stated he was no longer part of the board.

The Exit of a Visionary

Dorsey’s exit from the board was confirmed by Bluesky on Sunday afternoon. While it remains unclear exactly when Dorsey stepped down, the company’s corporate FAQ still listed him as a board member earlier that day. Bluesky released a statement thanking Dorsey for his contribution to the project and emphasizing its commitment to building an open-source social network.

A New Chapter for Bluesky

The departure of Dorsey, who first introduced the concept of Bluesky in 2019, marks a pivotal moment for the social network’s future direction. Bluesky, which now operates as an independent public benefit corporation, aims to find a new board member who aligns with its vision of a decentralized and user-centric social platform.

From Twitter to Bluesky and Beyond

Dorsey’s involvement in Bluesky began when he was still the CEO of Twitter. His vision was to develop an open and decentralized standard for social media, leading to the creation of Bluesky. Since then, the company has been led by CEO Jay Graber and has received backing from venture capital firms. Earlier this year, Bluesky opened to the general public and has quickly gained traction.
